What do you think of this bind off?

Was checking out the current issue of Knitty and found the following article about a stretchy bindoff that snaps back into shape.  This is a big deal for me because I don’t like it when the top of my socks look all stretched out before I’ve even worn them.  I think I will try this on the pair of socks I am currently knitting.  Check it out and let me know what you think:

Radiate on
Using the wonderful feeling Italian Ice, Radiate creatively uses a combination of knits and purls to create vertical lines pleasing to the eye and directing the attention to the neckline.  This design would look good over a t-shirt or tanktop for summer wear with some nice linen pants (can you tell I want to go shopping??).   And, Helene did a great job sizing the pattern to 3X!!   Italian Ice is a beautiful yarn:

  • Fiber Content: 61% cotton/26% linen/13% viscose
  • Put-Up: 50-gr ball
  • Yardage: 76 yards
  • Texture: ribbon wrapped with viscose highlights
  • Sts per 4″: 16 sts
  • Needles: US size 9 5.(5mm)

While supplies last, order enough for your size (9 balls or more), and we’ll take 20% off at checkout.   Use coupon code: knews624 and remember to click the redeem coupon button.  Enjoy!  Lea-Ann
